The Coen Brothers are headed to Netflix

The Coen Brothers, best known for their award-winning films like Fargo, No Country for Old Men, and O Brother, Where Art Thou?, are coming to Netflix. The streaming giant announced Wednesday that the duo has signed on to write, direct, and produce a Western anthology series.

The series, The Ballad of Buster Scruggs, will be comprised of six different stories about the American frontier. Tim Blake Nelson will star in the project, slated to debut in 2018.

"The Coens are visionary directors, masterful storytellers, and colorful linguists. We are thrilled for Netflix to become home to the full range of their talents," said Netflix's vice president of original content, Cindy Holland. Joel and Ethan Coen simply said: "We are streaming motherf—ers!"
